It was a retail pint, as I am in NJ, not OH. As I don't know the turnover for the product, I am trying to judge whether what I ate was a true representation of the ice cream or if it suffered somewhere along the line. There was a best by date of March 2014 on the bottom, so it's pretty close to expiration. The ice cream was not really creamy as compared to say B&J. It was almost icy, but it was not truly icy, if that makes sense. There were no ice crystals. I expected it to be richer tasting. The "chips" were fine, creamy, melted easily, not fake or waxy. The ice cream was comparable to how I find gelato to have a less luxurious mouthfeel.
Anyway, is that typical for Graeters or did I get an old pint?
